Thanks.

Hated the game when it first came out because of the combat system but for $15 I'll give it another try.

I didn't finish it back in PS2 era but after I got it for the PS4, I finished it this time! The fast forward feature changes everything. Love it! Lastly, one word: Seitengrat,

Both. Combat happens in real time, but an atb has to fill to get an attack, but you set up rules for the computer to play out. I freaking love the combat system in 12, unlike any other FF besides ff14

You can increase the playspeed to 2x or 4x which makes long fights way faster but a little more hectic to manage if you don't have good gambits setup. I was never frustrated at any load times, but I am not a person who really notices framerates unless things get really laggy and that only happens if there is a lot of stuff happening on screen at once which is rare.

Not available when I tried buying it last night and my store had it in stock as well. I think this is one of the items that somehow doesn't qualify.

The performance is top-notch - I played the game back on release this past July and absolutely loved every minute of it.  Load times are pretty snappy, and the option of using FFx2 or FFx4 is really a QOL improvement over the original.  For $16, it's a steal.

Real time. It's almost like MMO style combat with AI bots as your group mates.

is this game easy to get into?  I have never played any final fantasy games.  I have seen some videos and the managing system seems complex.

Yes. All of the main FF games are easy to get into, they’re fairly mainstream games. Well, FFXIV was overwhelming but the rest of them are real easy.

I'll gladly pay an extra $1.01 over the Target clearance price to stop having to go from store to store to see if "Limited" means "we ain't got none" every time.

None near me, unfortunately. I got excited because I actually have the original PS2 steelbook one too.

Also, if your store had any stock according to that link, it might not be the SteelBook version.
